The Story of Aladdin and 
His Wonderful Lamp 




CHE original story of Aladdin and His 
Wonderful Lamp is one of the most 

fascinating ever written. Its very origin 
is wrapped in mystery. It is perhaps the oldest and 
best known of all ancient legends. 

Aladdin was a tailor's son in ancient China. In spite of the evil 
intentions of a wicked magician, who kidnapped Aladdin, sending him 
into a deep cave to get a magic lamp and afterwards kill him, 
Aladdin, by accident, evaded the clutches of the bad man. When the 
boy returned home, he accidentally rubbed the lamp. A great Genii 
instantly appeared, and falling on his knees before Aladdin, demanded 
to know how he could serve his master. The boy thus discovered that 
the possessor of the lamp could rule the world, for nothing was impos- 
sible for the Genii to do. 

After ordering a rich repast, served on gold plates studded with dia- | 
monds, the boy requested beautiful clothes and priceless jewelry brought 
to him, until he was magnificent in appearance and confident in himself. 

Passing the Emperor's Palace one day, Aladdin caught a glimpse of the 
princess and straightway fell in love with her. Securing an audience with 
the Emperor and lavishing him with priceless jewels, precious stones and 
other presents, he asked the hand of the princess in marriage. After many 
trials and difficulties, the Emperor's consent was secured. 

To show his great appreciation, Aladdin called up the wonderful Genii 
and said : "Build me the most wonderful palace the world has ever seen. Line 
it with the finest rugs, tapestries and silks. The walls shall be of gold studded 
with jewels. AND BUILD IT IN A SINGLE NIGHT." 

Calling in all his wonderful resources, the Genii built and finished 
Aladdin's home in a single night, to the great astonishment of the old builders, 
who required years and years to build a palace. Aladdin moved in and lived 
happily ever after. 

Which can be said of the present day people who build the modern Aladdin 
home. And thus originated the name "Aladdin," of modern house fame.

A Word Regarding 

"HOMECRAFT" 

and "Aladdin Homecraft** Products 

The name stands for arts and crafts in home decorations, and unlike most trade- 
marks, the name was not made to fit the furniture, but each piece of furniture is made 
to live up to the name of our high furniture ideals. These three facts stand out pre- 
eminent above all others. 

No piece of furniture bearing this name is finished in imprint, that is, stenciled or 
printed to imitate Oak, Birds-eye Maple or Mahogany. 

Nothing but Genuine Oak or Mahogany, as the case may be, is used in the exposed 
portions ,of "Homecraft" furniture. 

No enlarged "wash" drawing pictures are used to make the furniture appear more 
massive than it really is. This is a very noteworthy fact, as nearly all furniture sold 
from catalogs today is shown in this way, while all "Homecraft" products are shown by 
pictures made from actual photographs of the merchandise. 

Will you let us serve you?

ALADDIN "HOMECRAFT" FIBRE FURNITURE 



This furniture was designed to moot the demand for 
strong, sanitary and serviceable furniture for the Den, 
Living room, Summer Home, Bote! or club House. 

Widely known as Bungalow Furniture, and is un- 
equaled for attractive designs, durability and wearing 
qualities, it is woven by hand into the dainty and 
comfort-insuring designs as shown. Is not affected by 
heat or moisture, and lias a finish that will not scratch, 
splinter or show the effects of hard usage. 



Proof of the strength of Fibre Furniture is found in 
the fact that the Interstate Commerce Commission re- 
mit I v made a ruling whereby the freight classification 
on fibre furniture is one-third less than on ordinary 
reed furniture, This is conclusive ©roof that it is 
stronger than any form of rood furniture. 

The Finish, "Homecraft" Fibre Furniture is finished 
in a delicate green which will harmonize with any 
interior decoration. Also furnished in the popular 
fumed Oak or Baronial. State which you wish.

JACOBEAN PERIOD XVII CENTURY 

AS REPRODUCED BY 

The Aladdin "Homecraft" Designers, Bay City, Mich. 



ON ACCOUNT OF the sturdy build 
and necessarily long life of Jacobean 
period furniture, there are probably more 
original pieces of this type of furniture 
in use to-day than of any other. Made 
of Oak, massive, sturdy, strong, and 
withal the graceful turned legs and well- 
balanced effect, together with the rich 
appearing cane panels, makes a wonder- 
fully good type of furniture. Our de- 
signers have/ in this set, preserved all of 
the good points of the old master. 

THE TABLE as shown in the cut is 28 in. 
wide and 48 in. long with a full- width drawer. 
Has beautifully turned legs and a wide mag- 
azine or book shelf below. A more pleasing 
design could not. 
be imagined, the 
whole effect being 
rich and well bal- 
anced. "The qual- 
ity will be remem- 
bered long after 
the price is for- 
gotten." 



THE STRAIGHT CHAIR up- 
holstered in genuine Spanish 
leather. Has a full-spring auto 
seat. 19%xl7Vl» in. The back is 
22 in. high with a cane panel 
7 in. wide; legs are 2 in. square, 
arms 4 in. wide. A well propor- 
tioned and beautifully finished 
chair. 







THE ROCKER like the 
straight chair is upholstered in 
genuine Spanish leather of the 
very best grade. Seat meas- 
urements are the same as with 
the straight chair. The rockers 
are well proportioned and the 
chair is swung in such a way 
as to give the most comfort. 



THE SETTEE is 38 in. 
high, 42 in. long, uphol- 
stered in the very best 
grade of genuine Spanish 
leather. Has a full-spring 
auto seat. The back is 22 
in. high, arms 4 in. wide,

nished regularly in Fumed Oak finish.

stering will be furnished upon request. 
We will also be glad to ofTer suggestions

beauty and comfort in every line. Its 
Simplicity of design and massive appear- 
ance, make it worthy of a place in any 
home, and it will harmonize with prac-

Mission style, of which this davenport is 
a splendid example, originated in our 
own country during recent years. Its 
chief characteristics are straight lines 
and heavy, massive construction, and is 
a slightly more elaborate form of the 
furniture found in the old Missions of 
California and the Southwest. Oak is 
the prevailing wood used, as It is very 
adaptable to this style of construction 
and to the many finishes, so deservedly 
popular at the present time. In this 
davenport, our designers have carried out 
the true Mission spirit in every detail, 
and it offers a splendid value to the dis- 
criminating buyer.

"HOMECRAFT" BEDROOM FURNITURE— BRASS BEDS 




ALL BRASS FOUR POST BED 

The most attractive brass bungalow bed ever 
offered. The finish on all our brass beds is beau- 
tiful. The bright effect is made permanent by the 
coat of Olasto, which after being applied, is 
baked on. In this process, it undergoes a chem- 
ical change, is fused into the fibre of the brass, 
thereby becoming ,i part of the brass so that it 
resists' the action of chemicals such as ammonia 
and alcohol. 

The posts of this bed are 2 in. in diameter, top 
rail is 1% in., fillers 1 in. Height of head is 52 
in.; height of foot, 40 in. Furnished in 3, 3%, 1 
and 4 1 /. ft. widths. Shipping weight, 140 lbs.

type. The continuous 2 in. pillar for both head 
and foot makes a sturdy, rich appearing bed. 
The full length % in. fillers crowned on each end 
by brass ferrules, add greatly to the appearance. 
In all the bed is an exceptional value. Nine filler

."HOMECRAFT" BED ROOM FURNITURE 





POST COLONIAL PERIOD XVIII CENTURY 
As Reproduced by 

The Aladdin "Homecraft" Designers, Bay City, Mich. 



FROM LATE IN THE SEVENTEENTH CENTURY— 

Post Colonial furniture was very popular. The low 
post bed being a very handsome and deservedly popular 
piece of furniture. In many cases the posts were 
surmounted by a pineapple carved into the post. 
This bed then passed through a period of violent con- 
trasts and settled to the turned posts, a good example 
of which has been worked out by our designers. It 
is interesting to know that during the late seventeenth 
century the bed was the household's most cherished 
possession. It is a matter of record that in the year 
1640 one William Southmead, of Massachusetts, valued 
his house at ninety dollars, while his post colonial bed 
and feather bed for same was valued at the same 
amount. 

Our homecraft designers have followed very closely 
the old masters in designing and creating this set, and 
we know that it would be impossible for you to get an 
equal value anywhere in the country. 

THE BED — It is beautifully designed and is built of 
select grain woods and finished in such a way as to 
make it a truly wonderful bargain. It is 56 in. high 
and furnished regularly 4 ft. 6 in. wide, but can be 
furnished in 3 ft. 6 in. wide, if so desired. The weight 
is 125 pounds. 



THE DRESSER is 42 in. wide and 20 in. deep with a 
heavy French bevel plate mirror, 24 x 30 in. The 
drawer pulls are large wood knobs. The drawer 
arrangement is, two large linen drawers below and 
two small drawers at the top. The weight is 165 
pounds. 

THE CHIFFONIER is 32 in. wide, 20 in. deep, and 
is furnished with a French bevel plate glass mirror, 
18 x 20 in. Has four large linen drawers and two 
smaller drawers, all pulls being large wood knobs. 
The turned posts which support the mirrors are made 
to match the posts of the bed. Weight is 160 pounds. 

THE DRESSING TABLE is 32 in. wide and 20 in. 
deep. Has a French bevel plate mirror, 18 x 20 in., 
and one full-width drawer with wood knob drawer 
pulls and turned post mirror supports. Weight 95 
pounds. 

THE CHAIR is a low-backed saddle seat bed room 
chair, which will add just the proper tone to the room. 

All pieces furnished in Mahogany finish and guar- 
anteed to give satisfaction or money will be refunded.

REAR ICING ARRANGEMENT FOR 

REFRIGERATORS 

Any refrigerator priced on this page can be equipped with a rear icing ar- 
rangement at a small additional cost. This arrangement consists of a door 
in the rear of the refrigerator in addition to the one in the front. A hole is 
made in an outside wall directly behind the refrigerator, and large enough to 
allow the rear refrigerator door to swing freely. This arrangement does away 
with the necessity of the ice being carried through the house, as the ice man 
fills the refrigerator from the outside.

our leader, and we believe the greatest range bar- 
gain ever offered. It is up-to-date in every res- 
nect. Every detail has been covered in a way that 
leaves no chance for improvement. This "Range" 
overcomes the great objection found in ninny 
ranges, in that it has no hearth and, therefore. 
occupies much less space than the ordinary range 
of the same oven and cooking top capacity. It 
stands on a sanitary base, thus allowing easy 
access underneath the stove for sweeping and 
scrubbing. 

THE FIRE BOX is verv large and is fitted 
with heavy hot blast, ventilated linings. The 
grates are of the duplex type, and burn coal, 
coke and wood equally well. They can he easily 
cleaned and removed when necessary. 

THE OVEN is large and well proportioned 
tieing 18x18x12% inches, fitted with a drop door. 
with always cool handle and a safety hinge. 
The oven will accommodate four 9-inch baking 
pans, We guarantee it to bake and cook to per- 
fection.

"Aladdin" stoves 
and ranges to be 
free from imperfec- 
tion of material and 
workmanship, a n d

When comparing the price on this range do not 
fail to consider the weight. This range weighs 
500 lbs., and the construction throughout embraces 
all of the modern improvements. 

The Colonial design is a feature used in many 
<>f the high priced ranges of today, and the 
Sanitary Base is another feature which is justly 
popular. Plain, highly polished removable nickeled 
trimmings are another modern improvement; in 
fact, every feature of this range is a talking 
point, and while we do not claim it to be as 
attractive in appearance as our "King," we do 
claim that this range will last as long and will 
give as much perfect satisfaction as any stove 
ever made. 

The outside damper rod operated in front 
of the range is another feature which is 
attracting much attention. 

The Fire Pot and Grate arrangement is 
the same as in our '"Coin" listed above, as 
is also the Oven and Main Top. The Reser

Aladdin Vacuum Sweeper $4-J2 

A Vacuum Sweeper and Carpet Cleaner Combined 

Brooms, carpel sweepers and vacuum cleaners 
have all bad their day and served their purpose, 
and now the combined vacuum cleaner and car- 
pet sweeper has come to stay. The first vacuum 
sweeper was brought out about three years ago 
and lias met with universal success. A carpet- 
sweeper alone, such as is used in the "Aladdin." 
would sell for $3.00, a vacuum cleaner which would 
do the same amount of work, would sell for at least 
$12.00, and the combined results of the two would be 
about the same as the work of the "Aladdin," and 
the liabor necessitated to operate the "Aladdin" is 
no more than operating a carpet sweeper. 

The "Aladdin" is equipped with an oblong dust 
bag, the contents of which alter using two min- 
utes will prove to you that your home was seldom 
absolutely (dean, unless you have used a vacuum 
cleaner. 

The "Aladdin" is equipped With three bellows 
which create a continuous vacuum and remove all 
dirt and dust from the rugs or carpets. The 
sweeper picks up threads and larger particles which 
the vacuum cannot. 

Thousands of these machines 
have been sold at $12.00 each 

Thousands of these machines have been sold

$Q.98 FOR THIS $10.00 MANTEL 

V^— = OUR "CLINTON" MANTEL 
An inexpensive mantel for use where the comfort or prac- 
tical side of the question is of more consequence than 

the artistic. We offer this mantel to meet the demands. 
While inexpensive, this mantel lias all of the essential 
features of our high-priced mantels. The frame is made 
in solid oak, finished in light or golden oak. 

It is 4 ft. high and the width is 4 ft. 6 in. The tile 
opening is 3(3 inches. The projection is 4 inches or it 
can be furnished in the flat. The tile which we furnish 
is all perfect in every way, no seconds or lactory culls. 
We furnish sufficient tile for the hearth and facing. 

While we know that in this mantel we offer more than 
it would be possible for you to get elsewhere at the same 
price our advice would be, buy a better mantel, as the 
cost of installing would be the same and for each addi- 
tional dollar spent in fixtures of this kind, you add fully 
five dollars in value to your home. Prices either with of 
without fixtures. *\ r^

OITR "COLONIAL" MANTEL 

This most attractive White Mantel is offered by us 
at a remarkably low price, and we do not hesitate to 
say that anyone purchasing this outfit will get more 
than their money's worth. 

The finish is pure white. We cover it thoroughly 
with 3 coats of white lead ami pure linseed oil. The 
reason we do not give it the finish coat of white enamel 
before sending it out from the factory, is that enamel 
being so hard and brittle would be very liable to gut 
damaged in shipment. 

The height is 4 ft. 4 in. Width 5 ft. The tile open- 
ing is 42 inches wide and 42 inches high. Tile pro- 
jection, 4 inches. 

As furnished by us these mantels are ready to install. 
No special chimney or flue is needed. In fact, if 
furnished with Outfit No. 2 any person with ordinary 
intelligence can place it: no special tools, skill or 
extra material being required. 

This grate will burn any kind of find, hard or sofl 
coal, coke or wood, and is absolutely clean. Requires 
the removal of ashes but once daily.

THIS OUTFIT will furnish a supply of 
fresh aerated water for any residence from 
a well, cistern, spring or other source 
where the water level does not exceed 2~> 
vertical feet below the base of the pump. 
This form of water storage, aside from the 
fact that it is the most convenient is the 
most sanitary as any stored water should 
be subjected to some form of aeration. 
The most simple method of aeration is 
represented in these systems as the proc- 
ess is being carried on continuously. The 
air connection from the pump enters the 
tank in our pump and the water is thor- 
oughly purified by the air bubbling 
through it to the top of the tank. 

TANK— The Tanks are double riveted 
throughout, every rivet calked before the 
tanks are tested. And out of the hundreds 
of these outfits which we have sold under 
a binding guarantee of "satisfaction or 



we have never had one com 



money refunded

PUMP— The pump furnished with our out- 
fits is a double pneumatic pump with a brass- 
lined cylinder and automatic air supply device 
—the most satisfactory air pump furnished with 
an outfit of this kind. 



ACCESSORIES— With each outfit we furnish 
a pressure gauge, an air gauge, a gate valve, 
a check valve, stop and waste cock, a hose 
faucet and the necessary pipe and pipe fittings 
to connect the system as shown in the above

TANK SETS 
HORIZONTALLY 



THIS OUTFIT C0118ists of an automatic water 
11 PUi»P and tank and accessories 
identical in design and purpose with those shown 
on the preceding page. In most cases these out- 
fits are used where the basement is not deep and 
where it is more convenient to have the tank Iving 
horizontally than standing vertically. In making 
a selection of water supply system it is always 
wise to purchase one of ample capacity, as they 
require much loss attention and a more uniform 
pressure can be had, A conservative estimate is 
that you should figure 30 gallons per day to each 
person in the family for domestic requirements. 



The accessories furnished are exactly the same 
as those described on the preceding page. The 
tanks are tested, and we know they are absolutely 
air tight before they leave the factory. To give an 
idea of how really good our "Aladdin" Water 
Works Systems are, we call your attention to the 
fact that these tanks are tested to an air pressure 
of 1*00 pounds before leaving the factory, and the 
average city water pressure of the cities of New 
York, Chicago and St. Louis is .23 lbs. Therefore, 
without effort you can have stronger water pres- 
sure than that of the above cities.

eral coats of pure white, and then coated on inside and over the 
rim with jmre white porcelain enamel, thoroughly baked on, giving 
the finished product a beautiful glazed surface. 

Every sink is fitted with a nickel plated strainer and iron sink 
collar and sink bolts. Collar can also be fitted for I 1 /, or 1 1 ', inch

LAUNDRY TUBS AND COMBINATIONS 

Our laundry tubs are made of a combination of crushed granite and Portland cement, mixed in such pro- 
portions as to make them smooth and at the same time absolutely proof against wear. They are bound 
with zinc around the outer edges and are furnished complete with legs and we can furnish traps and faucets 
for them at prices as quoted at the bottom of tins page. 

The tubs have rounded corners, therefore easy to keep clean and being moulded iu one piece, arc much 
stronger than tubs made of stone. As noted below, we can furnish these made either with or without high backs.

" ALADDIN" pipeless FURNACE 

A COMPLETE HEATING PLANT FOR THE PRICE OF A STOVE 




Showing the "Aladdin*' installed in our house, the "Port In mi; 



COSTS LESS THAN A BASE BURNER 

In our "Aladdin" pipeless furnace, we are offer- 
ing the very latest departure in warm air heating 1 . 
The principle is positive, ('old air is taken 
through three 8x10 inch registers, placed in the 
base of the jacket which goes around the furnace 
proper. The heat is forced upward through a 
large 14x20 inch register placed directly over the 
furnace. Through this register, the hot air passes 
with great force to the ceiling and circulates from 
there to all rooms of which doors have been left 
open to be heated. The warm air will be so 
evenly distributed that you will find a variation 
of less than three degrees between the room where 
the register is placed ami the room farthest away 
from same, providing of course, that doors con- 
necting these rooms are left open to give a free 
circulation. 



SIMPLE AND EASY TO INSTALL 

To give an idea of how simple an operation it 
is to install one of the "Aladdins." we show a 
cross section view of our house, "The Portland," 
with the furnace installed. We call your atten- 
tion to the fact that there are no large warm air 
pipes to destroy the usefulness of the basement, 
no wall pipes or fittings to be installed. In fact, 
any man who is so inclined, can install this fur- 
nace, do all of the work himself, and the whole 
operation should not take more than four or five 
hours. The register must be placed directly over 
the furnace, and the furnace should be placed, as 
nearly as possible in the center of the basement. 
You take no chance when you order an "Alad- 
din." We guarantee it for 365 days, one full year.

"ALADDIN" PIPELESS FURNACE $47,50 

SO SIMPLE THAT ANY MAN CAN INSTALL IT ^ • 

Furnished for Brick Set or with Galvanized Jacket 

In the large cut Jit the top of the page we show the furnace 
with a brick jacket. We furnish the furnace complete with 
all registers, and one extra length of 7-inch 
pipe, with check damper and galvanized iron 
register box, furnace chain and wall plate, 
and In fact everything necessary for Instal- 
ling the furnace with the exception of the 
brick and mortar. For setting the furnace, 
you will require about 350 common brick, 
one sack of cement and a bushel of sand. 

FURNISHED WITH GALVANIZED JACKET, We 

recommend the furnace with a galvanized jacket for 
use as a portable furnace, that is. in rented homes 
or for temporary use in any home or store building. 
The price is somewhat higher, but as you will note, 
the price at which we sell this furnace is no more 
than a good heating stove would cost, and with the 
use of a furnace, you gain the space ordinarily taken 
up by a stove, and at the same time, have the heat 
in such a way as to be entirely utilized and easily 
controlled. This furnace will use but very little, if 
any more fuel, than an ordinary heating stove, ami 
the prices which we quote are for the furnace com- 
plete. No extra pipe, registers or additional material 
required with the exception of the brick and cement 
which must be purchased for the brick set furnace. 



OUR GUARANTEE. 

We guarantee our "Aladdin" Pipeless Furnace 
without restriction, to heat any house containing 
15,000 cubic feet or less of air space, to an Average 
Temperature of 70 Degrees Fahrenheit, in the 
coldest weather, providing connecting doors are 
left open to give free circulation. 




The Fire pot is 20 inches in diameter and the 
walls are practically one inch thick, making this 
section only weigh 120 lbs. 

The (i rates are of the draw center shaker type, 
easily taken care of, and of a pattern which will 
save fuel. The furnace was originally Intended 
for burning soft coal or coke, but many of our 
customers are burning hard coal onlv, and others 
are burning nothing but wood, in every case the 
results seem to be satisfactory. 

The Radiator is so made that it can be opened 
and allow a direct draft or closed to take ad- 
vantage t) f all of the heat generated by the fur- 
nace. 



Water Coil. A water coil can be furnished for 
this furnace for Sj!*.00 

The Doors are amply large for all ordinary 
purposes. Feed doors being 11x11 inches and the 
ash pit door 10x10 inches. Each section of the 
furnace is fitted with a grooved top into which 
the section above fits in such a manner as to 
make the furnace dust proof. 

In addition to this, we will allow you the 
privilege of returning the furnace at any time 
during the first year after purchase, if found 
otherwise than as described hy us, and should 
you return the furnace, we will refund full pur- 
chase price, together with freight charge which 
you have paid. 



We furthermore guarantee that there will be a variation of less than 
three degrees between the room where the register is placed and the 
room farthest from it. If the furnace is found otherwise than de- 
scribed, you may return it, and we will refund full purchase price.

"SOVEREIGN" CAST RADIATOR ffiffltf!! 



BURNS ANY KIND OF FUEL 

TOO MUCH IMPORTANCE cannot be at- 
tached to the heating problem by the home 
owner. The long life of a heating apparatus 
and its yearly consumption of fuel, makes the 
original cost a minor detail. 

In tliis, our "Sovereign" Cast Radiator Warm 
Air Fnrnace, we Offer our highest grade furnace, 
of what is known as a pipe furnace. It burns 
either hard or soft coal with equally good re- 
sults in it we combine a long lived and a fuel 
saving heater. It is built on scientific lines. 

IN CONNECTION WITH THE LIFE OF THE 
FURNACE, we might say that buying a cheap 

furnace for temporary use may be good policy, 
but if you wish to buy a heating apparatus 
which will last yon a life time and give absolute 
satisfaction at all times, we say by all means 
buy a furnace with a cast iron radiator. As 
the original cost of a furnace when compared 
with the cost of fuel, which must be bought 
every year, is so very small that you can well 
afford to pay more for the furnace in the be- 
ginning than depend upon making a portion 
of the saving on fuel consumed each year. 

THE RADIATOR is made of heavy cast iron, 
which, when once heated, will retain the heat 
for a long time after the fire has burned low. 
The joints in this radiator are dust and gas 
tight and the arrangement of the flues in the 
radiator being siteh I hat all .Liases must pass 
entirely around the radiator before going out 
through the chimney. 

THE CASINO is made of 20 gauge Galvanized 
Iron with an inner lining of bright tin. Be- 
tween these is a heavy sheet of asbestos paper, 
also a deep air space as shown in cut. This cas- 
ing absolutely prevents waste of warm air. as 
it is as near a non-conductor of heat and cold 
as can be made. 

These casings are made large and roomy, thus allowing for ample air space and assuring a good 
flow of pure warm air. Not a limited supply of overheated air. Each furnace is equipped with a cast 
water pan to moisten the air. We send tee and check draft, also chain and other fixtures with 
every furnace. 

FIRE POT. We wish also to call vour attention to our sectional cast fire pot. This construc- 
tion has been found to be a great advantage in preventing the cracking of the tire pot, due to un- 
equal heating. Each fire pot is cast in two sections. its great weight and thickness, together 
with the fact that it is corrugated, insures a fire pot that will not warp or burn out. In fact, it 
should last a life time. 

THE ASH PIT. We show in the small out the actual arrangement 
of the grates, ash pit, etc. You will note that the grates are triangular 
and revolve. They are made with three sides, all exactly alike and thus 
only one-third of your grate is in service at any one time. With 
ordinary precaution regarding clinkers, these grates will last for 
many years. However, should they burn out. each bar can lie 
removed independent of all others. The operation is so simple 
that a novice could do it. New bars ran be substituted for old 
without disturbing the fire. 

DOORS to the fire box, as well as the ash pit are large, thus 
insuring easy access to the furnace, ami a great convenience 
when feeding or cleaning it.

OUR LOWEST PRICED AND MOST POPULAR FURNACE 



FOR THIS 
FURNACE 

COMPLETE 
WITH CASING 



h *\ *^ f%m ^ G offer herewith our lowest 

«P-^ll«^«J priced and likewise most popular 
warm air furnace, of the type 
known as the pipe furnace. 
This is not 8 cheap furnace as 
far as quality and workmanship 
are concerned, but is a strictly 
high grade guaranteed air fur- 
nace, which will burn any kind 
of fuel. The prices quoted on the 
furnace include Galvanized Iron casing, Tee, Check, 
draft, chains and water pan. In fact, everything 
complete, excepting pipe and registers. 

Send us a sketch of your home, showing loca- 
tion of chimney in basement and showing all 
window and door openings, giving size of each 
opening, and we will quote you a net delivered 
price on the furnace, together with all necessary 
pipe, registers, fittings, etc. We will in addition 
to this (if an order is received from you), send 
you a blue print, giving detailed information as 
to how the plant is to be put in and will also 
guarantee, that if the plant is put in according to 
our instructions, that it will heat your home to 
a temperature of 70 degrees in the coldest weather. 
We do not claim, however, that this furnace will 
last as long as our Cast Radiator Furnace, as it 
will not. Though it will last for a great many 
years and give excellent satisfaction. If you wish 
to hum wood in the furnace, the price is $2.00 
extra. 

GRATES as shown in the cut on the preceding 
page, are of the triangular bar grate type, which, 
in revolving, accomplished by turning the handle, 
effectively (dears the fire and grinds up any clink- 
ers. Each bar having three sides, one of which only 
is exposed to the fire at any one time and insures 
a long lived great liar. 

THE ASH PIT is deep and roomy, giving a 
large air space under tic grate which promotes 
and is essential to a long lifted grate, as nothing 
is so deteriorating to grate bars as having the 
ashes banked up underneath them. This is an 
important point and should not be overlooked 
by anyone owning or operating a hot air furnace. 

THE FIRE POT is deep and extra heavy. Is 
a corrugated pot which insures an air space 
around the fire. Likewise a saving in fuel 
and greatly lengthens the life of the fire pot. 
Being extra heavy, it also helps in equalizing the 
heat. 

THE BASE PLATE is one piece of heavy cast 
iron upon which the furnace rests. Forming at 
the same time the bottom of the ash pit. This 
is cast in one piece with the outer ring. Being 
connected with extra heavy cast iron bars or 
spokes. 




THE RADIATOR is provided with a diving 
Hue as shown in the large cut, which draws all 
heat to top of dome. Also all of the smoke must 
strike the dome of the radiator before passing into 
the chimney. This insures a very small percentage 
of waste heat. The whole radiator is made of % 
inch cold rolled steel. 

CASING is made of best 26 gauge Galvanized 
Iron. Galvanized both inside and out. The cas- 
ing prevents loss of heat. Is equipped with water 
pan, cold air duct, one length of smoke pipe with ■ 
check draft. 

DOORS. Both feed door and ash pit door are 
extra large. Both being equipped with dampers. 
These large doors make it easy to feed the fur- 
nace, nlso easy to remove the ashes.

DOUBLE WALL PIPE AND FITTINGS 



Our Double Wall Pipe is positively the most efficient 
We or Pipi" f"i; conveying warm air to rooms above 
the urst floor of i building, Ita strnetnral superiority 
makes it stronger than other iyj.cs, affords an oppor- 
tunity for perfectly tight joints hot ween sort ions of 
pipe and insures a minimum amount of heat loss in 
tin' walls. Double pipe is endorsed by all insurance 
underwriters and is recommended by them in prefer- 
ence to single wall pipe. Each section of pipe is 
equipped with patented slip joints so that a slight push 
win lock the sections together permanently, thus doinjr 
away with the use of solder and thus effecting a 



saving in the cost of installation. By the use of this 
pipe, any length of wall stack, even to the hundredth 
part of an inch, may be obtained without cutting. 
This is accomplished by means of the adjustable joint 
and various lengths in which the pipe is furnished as 
specified below. One of these adjustable joints should 
be used on each wall stack so as to obtain any desired 
length of stack. All our fittings for wall pipe such 
as boots, stack heads, tees, elbows, etc., as shown 
below, are also of double construction. This double 
constructed material is regularly furnished throughout 
on all our complete warm air heating plants.

REGISTERS AND COLD AIR FACES 

Our line of floor registers, wall registers and cold air laces is made dp of only the latest improved 
patterns, finished in either Black Japan or Oxidized Copper. The Black Japanned registers have 
a smooth black luster finish throughout, baked on, and will last for a great many years. Many, 
.however, prefer the Oxidized Copper finish to match other hardware trimmings. 

We can furnish larger or special sizes not listed and will be glad to quote prices on request.

OUR GUARANTEE. Our boilers are guaranteed 
to give absolute satisfaction when estimated ac- 
cording to figures given above and if installed from an 
estimate made by us, we guarantee tbat the plant will 
maintain an average temperature of 70 degrees Fahren- 
heit, in the coldest and most severe weather. We also 
guarantee the boilers to be perfect in material and 
workmanship and should any castings be found defect- 
ive, or the boiler otherwise than described by us. you 
may return it and we will refund full purchase price. 



An Ideal Boiler for Heating a Home of Any Description. 
BURNS ANY KIND OF FUEL. 

THE REST HEATING PT^ANT TO BUY. In con- 
sidering the best method of heating a home, so many 
things can be said in favor of steam, hot water or 
warm air, that it is almost Impossible to say which 
is the best. 

A great deal depends on the character of the build- 
ing, climatic conditions and the uses to which it is 
put. We have endeavored to make our line so com- 
plete that we can satisfy anyone, no matter what 
system they prefer. We know that each heating 
plant which we show is as good as can be bought 
for the purpose for which it is intended. It is not 
our intention to tell you what heating plant yon 
should use, but we will name you a price on any 
kind of a heating plant complete readout to Install 
and will guarantee the plant to heat your home to 
your entire satisfaction. 

BURNS ANY KIND OF FUEL. Our "Sovereign" 

will burn either hard coal, soft coal, coke or wood 
and give entire satisfaction with any of these. We 
know that it is the most satisfactory soft coal burner 
ever put on the market. The reason lor this is the 
large combustion space over the fire, for the mixing 
of gases, thus insuring a free burning, economical 
boiler. The fire pot is entirely surrounded by water 
thus utilizing all radiating surface. 

THE RATINGS. In figuring the radiation to be car- 
ried by a boiler, we merely figure the direct radiators, 
while 'all the piping mains, risers. How ami return 
pipes, should be figured as so much radiation, as each 
one of these have radiating surface. To eliminate, 
therefore, the trouble of figuring all of this radiation 
from the pipe, we figure merely the direct radiation, 
that is the number of square feet in the radiation, 
and add to these figures from 28 to 50 per cent for 
the pipe radiation. When asking for an estimate on 
radiation, always state what kind of fuel you will 
use, and if you wish rooms heated to more than 
70 degrees. 

CAST IRON BOILERS FOR HEATING. For 

home heating, a cast iron boiler is far superior to 
the steel boiler. While steel boilers are absolutely 
necessary for high pressure duty, that is in power 
plants, it does not necessarily follow that they 
would be best for home heating, where pressure 
does not exceed Ave pounds.

page. All that is necessary, however, to complete the boiler 
is a water gauge and the hot water thermometer. 

the STEAM DOME is an important factor in the efficiency 
of a steam boiler. You can readily understand how im- 
portant it is to have a dome of ample height to store a 
sufficient amount of dry steam above the water line, and to 
supply its rating as called for in the detail given below. 
This is not only a theory, but an absolute fact, that in 
order to obtain and maintain an even steam pressure, it is 
necessary to have a steam dome of ample size to regulate 
the steam pressure. 

SEND US A DIAGRAM OF YOtR HOME. You may use 

the blanks provided for this purpose by us, or you can 
draw a sketch of your home, designating every opening, 
windows, doors, arches, etc., give exposed surface, and 
in fact all possible information. At the same time tell us 

the height of your ceilings and mark each room as to what it is, 

living room, dining room or bed room. We will figure just how 

much radiation you need, how large a boiler you need, and we will 

give you a net delivered price on a complete plant with all pipes 

readi-cut to install. 

. Bear in mind that we are not offering you sufficient material to put 

in your own plant, but sell you the material readi-cut and guaranteed 

to install the furnace to your entire satisfaction. 

THE GRATES AND ASH PIT. The ash pit is extra deep and fitted 
with an anti-clinker triangular grate as per the illustration; these 
grates being so made as to allow any one grate bar to be removed 
through the ash pit door without interfering in the least with the other 
grate bars. This arrangement has been found very convenient in case 
of grate bars burning out in extremely cold weather. This will not 
occur with this boiler, only in case of extreme carelessness in allow- 
ing clinkers to accumulate in the ash pit 
or ashes to bank up under the grates. 

FIRE POT is so constructed as to 
give the very best results with the 
smallest amount of fuel. 

TO THE OWNERS OF "ALADDIN" 
HOMES: We have designed and cut 
your home in every detail, knew that 
we are in better position to furnish 
a heating plant which will heat that 
home to your entire satisfaction, than

tail. Don't fail to get our figures be- 
fore buying a heating plant.

CELL PIPE COVERING 

Asbestos air cell pipe 
covering is used very 
largely for steam or hot 
water heating plants. It 
is an ideal insulator, is 
1-in. thick, built up of 
layers of asbestos paper 
with small air cells be- 
tween. The accompany- 
ing cut shows very plain- 
ly the appearance of a 
sect i onal view of this covering. The pipe cov- 
ering is light, weighing much less, and at the 
same time being much more efficient than or- 
dinary moulded covering. It is also very much 
stronger and more durable and easier to handle 
than the moulded covering. Comes in sections 
3 ft. long.

READI-CUT RED CEDAR CHESTS 



We read of cedar and its many uses as far back as 
there is any trace of civilization. The old Egyptian 
idols were made of cedar. The timbers in King Solo- 
mon's temple were cedar of Lebanon. In ancient 
times, cedar was used as a preservative for valuable 
parchments; the ancients believed that cedar would 
make such papers last forever. Chests and strong 
boxes were lined with it for preserving valuables. In 
our own country, in the early days, long before cold 
storage for furs was known, Cedar chests were used 



for storing furs. In the Colonial days, every woman 
had a cedar chest in which to keep her furs, and expen- 
sive gowns. 

The chest which we offer you, will, if properly put 
together, last a life time, and preserve its natural color 
and odor. Aside from their value as a clothes chest, 
they make a beautiful article of furniture as a window 
seat for living or bed room. Nothing can surpass a 
Red Cedar Chest.

ALADDIN SEMI- SLATE SHINGLES 



7C PER 
1 J SQUARE 




SHOWING THE 



•GEORGIA" ROOFED WITH GREEN SEMI- 
GUARANTEED FOR 15 YEARS 



ITE SHINGLES 



Owing to the ever increasing price of wood shingles and 
the demand for a fire resisting roofing material, we have 
tound it necessary to add a roofing which we could ab- 
solutely guarantee as to wearing and fire resisting quali- 
ties. We offer here our "Aladdin" Semi-slate shingles 
which when applied have none of the undesirable fea- 
tures of prepared roofing, but have all appearances of a 
slate or tile roof. There never was a more beautiful 
or better appearing roofing offered than our "Aladdin" 
Semi-slate shingles. 

The base of this roofing Is heavy three-ply long fibre 
wool felt, thoroughly saturated with Pure Trinidad As- 
phalt. The surface is natural colored crushed rock 
worked into the roofing under pressure so thoroughly 
that in reality it becomes a part of the body of the roof 
and will never wash off. 

m COLORING: We use absolutely no artificial color- 
ing in the rock, but both the colors are natural and there- 
fore will not fade when put on a roof and exposed to the 
weather. In fact there is more or less dirt and dust in this 
rock when applied to the roof and when this is washed off 
the color will be brighter, if anything, than when shingles 
are applied. & 

Each shingle is 8x12 % Inches. They are applied as fol- 
lows: For the first course across the roof use H of the 
shingle. For the second use % of the shingle and above 
that use the full shingles. As they are laid 4 inches to the 
weather, you will readily see that there are three thick- 
nesses of these shingles on every point on your roof. 
When laid, the roof is approximately }A inch thick, three 
coats of long fibre felt, Pure Trinidad Asphalt and 
slate. A roof which will last as long as the foundation 
upon which it is applied and a roof that will resist fire, 
water, acids and alkali. It will not warp, crack or scale 



off. When once applied your roofing troubles are over 
lor all time. 

As to the fire resisting qualities, upon request we 
will send you a sample. Take a large live coal from 
your stove. Lay it on the slate surface of the roofinst 
and let it stand. You will find that 
the fire will burn out with no material 
damage to the roofing any more than 
a slight melting of the as- 
phalt underneath, which will 
immediately harden after tho 
fire has gone out. 

"Aladdin" semi- 
slate shingles are 
packed in cartons 
containing 424 
shingles to the

ALADDIN JUNIOR SEMI-SLATE ROOFING 

GUARANTEED FOR 10 YEARS 

The best low priced roofing over offered. Tn appearance it is very- 
similar to our Semi-Slate roofing described under No. 2A-300. 
The body of the roofing is extra heavy long fibre wool felt. 
This is saturated with pure asphalt, then covered on the 
weather side with chipped slate or granite in natural 
colors. This finely chipped material is firmly imbedded 
in the heavy coating under tremendous pressure. It 
is actually rolled in until it becomes a part of the 
roofing material. The slate and granite being 
natural colored, guarantees the roofing against 
losing its color.

CHEAPER THAN SHINGLES— WEARS LIKE TILE— A SAFEGUARD 
AGAINST FIRE—GUARANTEED I OR 15 YEARS. 

There are so many truly commendable things which we could say about our "Aladdin" 
Semi-Slate Roofing, that it's hard to say them in the amount of space which we have 
for this roofing. The fundamental principles of all prepared rooting is the quality and 
weight of the felt used in the construction. Added to this is the quality and texture 
of the Asphalt used to saturate and preserve this. Then conies the matter of a proper 
surfacing to assist the combination in withstanding the weather. A great many roofings 
are sold, which in certain localities and under certain cliniatie conditions, are perfect. 
The same roofing used in other localities and under different climatic conditions, will 
not give satisfaction. Therefore, in making our roofing contract, we looked for and 
found the manufacturer who was doing a nation wide business, one whom we knew could 
irive us a roofing, guaranteed for use in any climate and under all conditions. We now 
offer you what we know to be the best Semi-Slate Asphalt Roofing on the market. 

The base of the roofing is long fibre wool felt saturated with Pure Trinidad Asphalt 
and surfaced with a bright colored Crushed Slate, which is firmly embedded into the 
surface by a patent process. This slate is of a natural color, either red or green 
and will not fade, but the colors will brighten with age. This roofing nerds no paint- 
ing. When you have it laid, you have a roof which we guarantee to last 15 years, and 
know that if laid according to our instructions, will last for twice that length of time. 

It adds to the beauty of any structure. We wish to impress upon your mind the 
fact that this is not an article which is cheap in any sense, but a first class heavy 
weight, clean roofing and one of which we are justly proud. 

INSTRUCTIONS. In preparing vour roof for this roofing, whether a new or old 
roof, sweep the roof perfectly clean. Then go over it thoroughly Vith a hammer. Be 
sure that no nail heads project, as anything of that kind materially affects the fife 
of the roofing. Lay the first course across the roof as you would a course of shingles. 
Then cement along the upper edge, using the cement which we furnish (first having 
nailed the roofing down). Then lay another course, and so on. 

OUR GUARANTEE. We guarantee "Aladdin" Semi-Slate Roofing, for 16 years. 
This guarantee is without restriction, if put on according to our instructions. If 
you should purchase this roofing, and it should fail to give satisfaction, advise us. 
giving particulars, and we will forward new roofing without cost to you. Each square 
contains 108 square feet, packed complete with nails and cement.

"ALADDIN" RUBBER SURFACED ROOFING 

The "base of this Rubber Surfaced 
Roofing is the same as our Semi-Slate 
Roofing; that is, we use the same long 
fibre wool felt and the same pure Trin- 
idad Asphalt. With this, however, we 
have a smooth, rubber stir face, which 
lias been so popular for more than a 
generation. We can heartily recom- 
mend this roofing to anyone wishing a 
first-class, rubber surfaced roofing, and 
while we cannot claim that it makes 
an imposing appearing roof as the Semi- 
Slate, we can say that this rooting is 
equal in appearance and wearing Qual- 
ity to any rubber surfaced roofing on 
the market, no matter what the price. 
That is a broad statement and one 
which should convince you that the 
roofing is worthy of your notice. We 
make this roofing in three different 
weights. The one-ply, which weighs 
35 lbs. to the square, the two-ply, 
which weighs 45 lbs. to the square, and 
three-ply, which weighs 55 lbs. to the 
square. 

The same precautions for laying 
which apply to our Semi-Slate Roofing, 
also apply to this. 

GUARANTEE: Our "Aladdin' 1 Rub- 
ber Surfaced Roofing is guaranteed as 
fellows: One-ply for 5 years; two-ply for 10 years: 
three-ply for 15 years. Put up in rolls containing 108 
square feet. Ask for net delivered price.

similar in every respect to the 
"Aladdin" Semi-Slate roofing that 
is. the body is long fibre wool 
felt, thoroughly saturated with 
pure Trinidad asphalt, a combi- 
nation which in itself will guar- 
antee to the mind of the average 
man that the roofing is all that 
we claim for it. The surface 
has a tine mineral coating which 
is firmly embedded Into the body 
of the rooting under pressure, and 
will always remain the same. The 
roofing is as good as can be made 
for the money and we feel cer- 
tain that, should you decide to 
purchase it. you will be com- 
pletely satisfied. 

We do not offer this in mill

ment with a binding guarantee

METAL ROOFING AND SIDING 



For economy and durability, there is nothing 
to compare with metal as a roof covering, siding 
or ceiling material. There are a great many 
features of metal covering which prove its su- 
periority over other forms of rooting. Chief 
among these are its wearing qualities, economy 
in laying, economy in price and its fire and light- 
ning proof qualities. 







THE STRONGEST AND MOST SERVICEABLE ROOF COVERING 

WEARING QUALITIES. Metal roof covering 
has been in use for over a century, and during 
that time has proved definitely that it will wear 
longer than any form of roofing. Nearly all large 
factories are roofed with metal. 

ECONOMY IN LAYING. It does not require 
an experienced man. as any ordinary mechanic 
can lav from 10 to 14 squares in a day. No tools 
are required excepting a hammer. 
ECONOMY IN PRICE. A metal roof can be laid with less 
roof boards than any other roof, and the original cost is less 
than good shingles and but slightly mure than prepared roof- 
ing, which will not last half as long. 

EIRE AND LIGHTNING PROOF. Many fires originate each 
year from shingled roofs. A building covered with a metal 
roof has never been known to have been damaged by lightning. 
$2.05 PER SQUARE CORRUGATED ROOFING 
Corrugated roofing is absolutely the strongest and most serviceable 
form of metal roofing to buy, as every fumigation srrvcs to strengthen 
the sheet and air space thus formed underneath the roof when laid, 
serves to lengthen the life of the roof. We furnish the corrugated 
rooting in two kinds. The painted which is plain sheets with two 
coats of red roof paint, and the galvanised or Bust Proof. We always 
recommend the use of Galvanised Hooting where a permanent roofing 
is required, as properly laid, it will last for 50 years; these figures 
being based on 28 Gauge roofing and dot the light weight roofing sold 
so generally of hate years. 

We furnish either of these forms of roofing with 1% inch or 2% 
inch corrugations as per prices quoted below.

ORNAMENTAL METAL CEILING has become very

They are easy to apply, will last a life time, are tire 
and dust proof, do away with the expense of repair 
and eliminate the danger of falling plaster. A metal 
ceiling is easily applied and does not require the services 
of an experienced machanic. 

For the design shown above and similar designs, it 
is necessary to use furring strips. Furring strips are 
nailed directly to the ceiling joists, leveled up, that is, 
wedged out whore necessary to make it perfectly level. 

and as each sheet of our metal ceiling has a ' beaded 
vi\\ii\ it is Impossible for any one to go wrong, in ftp. 
plying it. 

We Show here only one design, but upon request, will 
send large cuts of many other designs from which to 
make your choice. It' you will send us a diagram of 
the rooms on which you wish to use this ceiling, and

of being much lower in price. With this ceiling it is not 
necessary to use furring strips as it may be applied directly 
onto the joists or put on over an old plaster ceiling. It is how- 
ever, preferable to use furring strips with any metal ceiling. 

This pattern is also used extensively as a side wall. We can 
furnish a wainscoting and chair rail to go with these, thus giving 
a perfect siding. The sheets arc 24 inches wide and 96 inches 
long, have a beaded joint and make a very neat appearance when 
applied. It is palmed with one coat of gray. All that is needed 
is a finish coat of any desired color, this to be put on after the

"ALADDIN" PLASTER BOARD 



$1 Jg PER SQUARE 



NOT A SUBSTITUTE FOR PLASTER 
BUT AN IMPROVED PRACTICAL 

FORM IN WHICH TO USE PLASTER. 
We do not claim that our "Aladdin" 
plaster board is a substitute for plaster. 
We claim much more, however. We 
claim that it is a practical, improved 
form in which to use plaster. The con- 
struction is us shown in the cut at the 
lower left hand corner; that is four lay- 
ers of heavy felt paper and three layers 
of hard white plaster. We claim for this 
construction many advantages over old 
time-honored plaster. It is as near fire 
proof as plaster can be made. It is 
sound proof and is 30 per cent warmer 
than ordinary plaster. Can be put on in 
any kind of weather and the big feature 
is the economy in applying. 

FIRE PROOF— By actual test "Alad- 
din" plaster hoard has withstood 17(H) 
degrees of hent. applied to the center of 
a sheet of the board. The peculiar con- 
struction, that is the pressure under 
which the board is placed in the mak- 
ing, drives the plaster Into the fiber Of 
the paper, thus making it a part of the 
plaster and at the same time, giving it its fire 
resisting qualities. 

SOUND PROOF. To ordinary plaster, which is 
considered a non-conductor of sound, we add 
four layers of heavy felt paper, which in itself 
is also a non-conductor of sound. (Heavy felt 
paper being used all over the world as deaden- 
ing felt.) Thus in the combination of these two 
non-conductors of sound, we claim to have a 
sound proof piaster board. 

WARMER. In building a home, you naturally 
in thinking of something to make it warm, use 
a layer of paper on your boxing, which is cor- 
rect. With our "Aladdin" plaster board we give 
you four layers of paper around each room. By 
actual test a house lined with "Aladdin" plaster 
board requires 18 per cent, less fuel than the 
same house in which lath and plaster have been 
used. We have letters from satisfied customers 
in nearly everv state, who have used our plaster 
board, all of whom seem to be more than pleased 
and we can, therefore, say that it gives universal 
satisfaction. Being a non-conductor of heat, we 
claim that our plaster board will keep your house 
warmer in winter and cooler in summer than 
any other form of plaster. 




Showing method of applying "Aladdin" Plaster Board 



EASY TO APPLY. The greatest feature of 
this plaster board is the ease in which it can 
be applied. The sheets are 32x36 inches. Can 
be used on studding placed 16 or 18 inches apart 
and is nailed directly to the studding. For nail- 
ing, use 1% inch nails with large heads. Space 
the sheets of plaster hoard 14 -inch apart and 
space the nails from 4 to 6 inches apart. Use a 
common hand saw to cut the sheets where nec- 
essary. 

AFTER YOU HAVE COVERED the room with 
the board in this way, use our plnsto-filler for 
filling in the space between the sheets of plaster 
board. Or better still, put a putty coat or hard 
plaster finish directly on the plaster board. In 
either case you can paint, kalsomine or use wall 
paper on the walls. We show at the bottom of 
the page, a room in one of our "Aladdin" houses 
finished with wall paper over "Aladdin" plaster 
board.

"ALADDIN" QUALITY DOORS 

BEAUTIFUL OREGON PINE DOORS 

The most beautiful, and at tlie same time, the most durable 
door on the market. Made from clear Oregon Pine, having all 
the lasting qualities of Michigan Pine and the beautiful grain 
of Yellow Pine. 

We handle nothing: but strictly No. 1 doors, and in this follow 
out our principle of using the name "Aladdin" only on articles 
we can stand back of in every way. 




Could we but have one of these doors in your locality, where 
you could see it, we know that you would buy it in preference to 
any other door on the market. 

The construction of the door is of the very best. The stiles 
and rails are made of slashed grain Clear Oregon Pine. The 
panels are veneered with rotary cut Oregon Pine. We claim 
that our price on this door is absolutely the lowest ever offered 
on a door which could in any way compare with this. In order 
that you may see the beautiful grain which this wood has and 
the finish which it will take, we will, upon request, send you a 
sample of the panel, stained and finished, and at the same time, 
tell you how to finish the door to get the best effect. 

At the bottom of this page we show our bungalow front doors, 
which can be used in connection with this to get the most 
artistic results. Furnished in 1 % inches thick only.

ALADDIN" MOSAIC FLOOR TILE 

An Ideal Flooring Material for Bathrooms, Kitchens and Store Buildings 



EASY TO LAY. Few people realize how easy 
it is to lay a Mosaic tile floor. It is, however, 
very simple, and a tile floor, when once laid 
over a cement foundation, is practically inde- 
structible. For a bathroom, vestibule, store 
building or kitchen, a tile floor is not only the 
best, but the cheapest Uoor you can buy. It will 
last a life time, is easily cleaned, and for its 
cleanliness, is a very desirable floor for a drug or 
confectionary store or a bank, and as a bath- 
room or kitchen floor, is a delight to any house- 
wife. Send us a diagram of your room, and let 
us quote you net delivered price on sufficient 
tile to cover it. 

DIRECTIONS FOR LAYING. Make allowance 
of a*bout three inches below floor level for a tile 
floor. This allows about L'Ms inches for con- 
crete. (Composed of one part cement, two parts 



sand and two parts gravel) well mixed with 
water. Allow this to set. Next comes the float, 
consisting of equal parts of cement and sand. 

Take a board of proper thickness, which when 
hud upon your concrete base, will be level with 
the top of the floor. Lay this strip across the 
room about two feet from wall and fill with the 
float. Then lay a strip of tile across the room 
(paper side up), ;uid pound with a block and ham- 
mer until the mortar is visible in the joints, be- 
tween this. Then move your strip over and lay 
another course of tile, and so on. When finished, 
remove paper by wetting thoroughly and peeling 
it off slowly. Sprinkle tile with white sand and 
beat it down. Allow to set for two hours, then 
mix a grouting of pure cement and water (add 
lamp black for coloring if desired), All joints 
with this aud wipe off surplus with a damp soft 
cloth.

INTERIOR WORK TO REPLACE WOOD LATH. 

Metal lath has become so popular in 
the last few years, that it hardly needs 
describing. The principal features be- 
ing that it is fire proof, holds plaster 
better than wood, will not swell when 
wet, consequently cause cracks in plas- 
ter when dry. For interior work it is 
fastened directly to the studding with 
one inch staples. For exterior or Stuc- 
co Work, it is applied over furring 
strips (common lath), nailed to the 
sheathing or boxing, thus allowing the 
plaster to cover or clinch on the under 
side of the lath. Comes in sheets 24 
inches wide, 96 inches long.

"ALADDIN" CONCRETE BLOCK MACHINE 

p FOR MAKING BUILDING AND FOUNDATION BLOCKS 

l\ THREE SIZES— 8x8x16 IN., 8x10x16 IN. AND 8x12x16 IN. 
EASY TO OPERATE. NO EXPERIENCE NECESSARY. 

THE CONCRETE BLOCK MACHINE illustrated here is 
without question one of the biggest bargains ever offered to 
the trade in a machine that will make a standard size block 
either in a single or a double core on the face down principle. 
We are able to make you this remarkably low price because 
of our buying in large quantities ami giving our customers 
the benefit. Anyone contemplating building houses, whether of 
wood or of concrete, will find this machine very practical and 
just what is needed. Because the initial cost is so small, 
it will pay for itself out of the first 200 blocks made. It is a 
practical machine for carpenters, stone masons and brick 
layers. It makes an excellent utility machine for block plants. 
It can be furnished in three sizes- S in. by S in. by 1(5 in., 8 
in. by 10 in. by 16 in., and 8 in. by 12 in. by 16 in.' single or 
double core. 

CONSTRUCTION. The "Aladdin" face down block machine 
Is made entirely of the best grade of gray Iron castings. The 
moulds are closely fitted, and are of simple construction. All 

parts are made interchangeable and the face plate is of 
very deep cut design. A special eccentric latch is used for 
locking the mould securely. The stand is rigidly supported 
and made to> carry the mould with the material and to stand 
tor severe tamping. We guarantee this machine to make a 
perfectly true block. 

ATTACHMENTS. A number of different attachments can be furnished at a nominal extra charge, 
for the "Aladdin" block machine, and we illustrate a few of these below. These attachments are very 
readily and easily placed in the machine. A flask attachment takes the place of the mould as shown 
in complete machine. A four inch course attachment takes the place of face plates and end doors. 
An angle bay window takes the place of face plate and one end door and a circle bay window takes 
the place of face plate and two end doors. All attachments are arranged so as to make the block 
face down, which permits you to use special coloring or a rich mixture for face block with a lean 
mixture for the balance of block. We make a very nominal extra charge for these attachments. 

FACE PLATES. We can furnish a number of different designs of face plates at a very nominal 
extra charge. These face plates include broken ashlers of four different designs, whirlwind 
scroll rope cobblestone, tooled margin rock, tooled margin bush-hammer, tooled face, panel, plain 
and water table plate. All these plates are of correct design and make an excellent addition with 
the regular outfit and will give you an ample assortment of different styles of blocks. 

REGULAR OITFIT. The regular outfit shipped with "Aladdin" face down block machine con- 
sists of one rock face plate for whole blocks, one rock face plate for one-half and two one-quarter 
size blocks, one interchangeable rock plate, one pair of core end plates, one pair of dividing 
plates for fractional size blocks, one steel striker, one pair of joist block plates, one double end 
tamper, one sample wood pallet, one gable block dividing plate and necessary plugs for making 

whole blocks. 
This outfit 
will make all 
blocks neces- 
sary in an or- 
dinary build- 
ing. When or- 
dering, spec- 
ify the style 
o f machine 
wanted. W e

otherwise 
specified.

"ALADDIN" HAND AND POWER BATCH MIXER 

A PRACTICAL MIXING MACHINE FOR SMALL 
JOBS. FASTER THAN HAND MIXING AND GIVES 
A MORE UNIFORM AND RELIABLE MIXER. 

The "Aladdin" Batch Mixer is designed to fill the 
demand for a low price machine that can be used on 
small jobs by carpenters, stone masons, brick layers, 
and also by those contemplating putting up their own 
buildings. The machine is also designed for efficiency 
in its operation and also as to thoroughness of its 
mixing qualities. Nothing has ever been offered that 
will equal this machine for its speed in mixing, its 
ease of operation and its extremely low price. We are 
only able to make this price because of our excellent 
connection and purchasing this machine in large quan- 
tities. No carpenter, brick layer or stone mason can 
afford to be without one of these machines. He can 
not purchase the lumber to build the box and buy the 
necessary hoes, shovels, etc., that are required for mis 
tag of concrete, any cheaper than he can buy this 
machine. It is a well known fact that machine mixed 
materials are more uniform in color and in the quality 
of the mixture. Machine mixing is faster than mix- 
ing in the ordinary box. The machine is always ready 
for operation, requires no attention or care other than 
'leaning when through, and will always be found on the 
.job. it is light and can be wry readily ported around 
It can be taken into buildings and can be used on small 
jobs and repair work.

work at hand. When dumping, push the lever to one

POWER ATTACHMENT. We can provide a power

"ALADDIN" DISAPPEARING STAIRWAY 



AN ATTIC OR 

BUNGALOW 

STAIRWAY THAT 

ABSOLUTELY 

DISAPPEARS. 




HOW TO UTILIZE WASTE SPACE: When arranging 
floor space it is often found that a stairway will take up 
too much space, this being more especially so in bun- 
galows, or for attic stairs in two-story homes. The "Alad- 
din" stairway was designed to enable the builder to provide 
a maximum number of square feet of floor space with a 
maximum of convenience and efficiency. The stairway con- 
sists of a strong well built flight of stairs, which is attached 
to the end trimming in the ceiling. It is quickly and 
easily attached and its advantages are apparent to anyone. 

OUT OF THE WAY— When the stairway is .not needed, 
it is compactly folded up in the ceiling. There is nothing 
visible but a neat panel, finished to match the rest of the 
woodwork of the room. It is ready for use at a moment's 
notice, but still gives you full use of all the room. When 
needed, a slight pull on a chain provided for that purpose, 
will bring the stairway down complete with hand rail 
ready for immediate use. It is down to stay until no 
longer desired or needed, when it can be quickly put out of 
sight, with but slight impulse on the part of the operator. 



The distance 
from front edge 
of stair horse to 
landing, w h e n 
stairs is down 
on floor. 

8 ft. ceiling is 
C ft. 6 in. 

Sy 2 ft. ceiling 
is G ft. 11 in. 

9 ft. ceiling is 
7 ft. 3 in. 

10 ft. ceiling is 
8 ft. in. 



35= 



For Stairway 
Complete. 

Anyone can 
install it. 



EASY TO OPERATE. When stairs are not in use, they 
are rolled half way up on the panel (they work on rollers.) 
A very slight push is all that is required. A spring barrel 
concealed under the landing does the work. When the 
stairs is thus pushed up on the panel, our system of 
counter balance does the rest ; that is, swings it up into 
the ceiling A child can operate it. 

THE MOST WONDERFUL THING ABOUT this stair is 
its simplicity. As before stated, absolutely all that is in 
sight when the stair is not in use, is a neat panel in the 
ceiling, which can be finished in harmony with the balance 
of the woodwork. 

SOME OF ITS USES: The "Aladdin" stairway can be 
used in any structure, for lofts in homes and tenement 
buildings, in stores and office buildings; in bungalows, 
summer cottages, to roof gardens, etc.; to replace hatch- 
ways in yachts, launches and steamships; in fact, in any 
kind of a structure on land or sea. 

The large cut at top of page shows the stairs let down 
for use. The second cut shows the stairs shoved up on 
the panel. The counterbalance now swing it into place 
as shown in cut at bottom of the page. 




Place opening for stairs so that 
the end of stair horse, when raised 
in the attic, will clear ceiling or 
rafters. Measurements from landing 
to end of stair horse, when raised 
to close, is 5 ft. 5 in. for an 8 ft. 
ceiling, and 6 ft. 8 In. for a 10 ft. 
ceiling. 



FULLY GUARANTEED 




The stairway is shipped with the 
panel in the white. The stairs is stained 
and waxed and is fully and uncon- 
ditionally guaranteed to give satisfac- 
tion, when properly installed, and if 
found otherwise than described by us, they may be 
returned and we will refund full purchase price. Fur- 
nished in yellow pine with a panel of either yellow pine 
or oak.

COSTS LESS THAN READY MIXED PAINT 

SPREADS FARTHER THAN ANY PAINT 

IT is generally known by the paint-ttSing public that lend and oil 
make the very best paint obtainable. However, the trouble has 
always been when wanting a colored paint, it has been impossible 
to mix the dry colors with the lead by hand, and get a paint which 
would be even in color. We have overcome this in our "Aladdin" 
Readi-Colored lead. The color, being ground with the pigment by 
machinery, assures ail even color throughout, and we can truthfully 
say regarding this, that it is paint-perfection for exterior and interior 
use. Put up, net weight, in 100-lb. kegs; 25, 12% and 5-lb cans. 

"Aladdin" Readi-Colored Lead is ground to extreme fineness 
and is absolutely uniform. It works easily under the brush 
and will cover a maximum amount of surface. It is not affected by 
gases or other destroying fumes. It is the best paint in paste form, on the market. It is ground 
in pure linseed oil to the consistency of white lead and is ready for use after being thinned with pure 
raw linseed oil in accordance with our directions. 

"Aladdin" Readi-Colored Lead has always been a favorite and always produces satisfactory re- 
sults. 

"Aladdin" Readi-Colored Lead is not a new or untried paint, nor one of which the consuming 
public is in doubt. A generation ago. it had won its way to the top of the list and many con- 
sumers will use nothing else for outside or inside work. 

"Aladdin" Readi-Colored Lead is made in pure White, Black and twenty-four other shades. Sam- 
pie cards sent free on request.

other ingredients as listed below. Reduce the 
smaller packages in proportion. 



QUALITY COMPARED 

WITH READY MIXED 

PAINT 

"Aladdin" Readi-Colored Lead is 
ground in with oil and pigments 
in a way which makes the paint 
more dense than is possible with 
lead and oil mixed by hand. The 
result is that "Aladdin" Readi-Col- 
ored lead takes a greater per cent- 
age of oil, is more economical, cov- 
ers more surface and out lasts ready 
mixed paint by at least 50 per cent. 




OUR GUARANTEE

tee "Aladdin" paints and finishes to cover 
more surface and wear longer than any 
other paint or finish on the market, at 
the same price, if applied according to 
our directions. If found otherwise, we 
will replace free of all charge to you.

BARN PAINT 

Guaranteed to be Absolutely Pure 

PRESERVE YOUR BARNS and large 
structures of all kinds. Paint is 
cheaper than lumber. The best barn 
paint sold for the price. Put up in the 
following sizes. 

"Aladdin" Barn Paint is for barns 
and large structures on which a first 
class barn paint should be used, it 
is made with special reference to dur- 
ability, appearance and preserving 
(nmlities. The same care ami process 
are used in its manufacture as in mak- 
ing our house paint. Dry pigments 
and oil cannot be mixed by hand and make a lasting and protecting paint. Power is absolutely nec- 
essary to combine the pigments and the oil. This we accomplish by machinery, thus thoroughly 
driving the oil into the pigments. Where dry pigments and oil are mixed by hand, only the outside 
particles of the pigment are caught with oil. When this paint is applied to the surface, the absorp- 
tion on one side and the atmospheric action on the other soon draw the oil away from the pigments 
and destroy it. This leaves the dry pigment without a binder on the surface and it is easily washed 
off. So why mix your own barn paint? Write for Color card showing sample shades and giving com- 
plete directions.

WAGON AND IMPLEMENT PAINT 




"Aladdin** Wagon and Implement Paint. This 

paint is a good investment as a protection for 
wagons and implements. Almost every vehicle 
has a good paint coat in the beginning, but decay 
soon sets in wherever the original coat is cracked 
or worn away, and it is only necessary to have 
a small can of "Aladdin" Wagon and Implement 
Paint handy and to use it for recoating all worn 
spots. This will prevent any water action on the 
implement itself. And when the original paint 
coat becomes discolored or badly worn, the life 
and usefulness of the implement may be pro- 
longed by applying a fresh coat of "Aladdin" 
Wagon and Implement Paint. 

"Aladdin" W T agon and Implement Paint is made 
in Blue, Yellow, Black, Green, Red and Brown.

"ALADDIN" FLOOR PAINT 

ELASTIC DURABLE 



"Aladdin" Floor Paint is a quick drying and dur- 
able paint for inside floors, the kind of hard elastic 
finish which a floor paint must have to stand wear 
and tear. The reason for this is that "Aladdin" 
floor paint is a thin paint, and the ingredients 
thoroughly and quickly harden. A thick heavy 
quick drying paint will not harden through. A 
am* or this kind dries on the surface only, remaining soft underneath. It is liable to rub up, peel, 
or^ stick to the legs of chairs when moved. A thick paint cannot be used with satisfaction on 




etc., 



floors because it dries too slowly and gives dirt and dust' a chance "to become mixed with the paint 

"Aladdin" floor paint is covered by our binding guarantee and is made in the following shades: 
lenow, ived. Maroon, Brown, Green and Gray. All these colors are shown on our sample shade card
